Just got my appointment made for Saturday morning. Was told it'll take 5 hours, wtf? I bet most of it will consist of coding. If your cars are coded, get prepared for it to get reset, smh.

Ya they did mine when my second set of injectors went out after 18k miles. Lucky BMW NA covered it even though was not under warranty. Sahara dealership wanted to charge me $370 for each of the new injectors that are replacing the replacements.

I just want to point out that fuel injectors go for 50-100 a pop...that's namebrand/performance ones even like edelbrock.
